Minty Coffee Soothes the Ankle

 It's a minty coffee day around here! We woke up this morning to a boatload of snow and therefore it's a snow day for the kids and a major caffeine fix for Momma so that she can keep up with the kidlets! lol I don't know what's better with coffee besides a big ole candy cane, do you? Nope...didn't think so ;)

I water coloured the coffee cup with my tombows and sponged the background in. I then took a couple of prismas and some gamsol just to add some shading underneath the cup because I forgot to add some tombow there before I sponged...maybe I haven't had enough coffee yet today! If fact I know I haven't other wise I would have known to wear better boots to check the mail...instead I fell flat on my back with my leg folded underneath me and making a rather nasty popping sound. We will see how the ankle is a little later today but it sure feels like a sprain! Ugh! Well, enough about me and onto Emily's good news...

You all know that Stamping Bella is a Canadian store right? Well, Miss Em is currently in Michigan and is wanting to celebrate Black Friday with the Americans so what does that mean for everyone? She is offering you for EVERY order OVER $50 you will receive 5 free stamps (Stamping Bella chooses) included in your order!!  The retail value can be up to $50!  all for FREE! The sale starts now and goes until Monday at midnight! Such a fantastic deal right? I know! :D

Don't forget that tomorrow is Bellarific Friday and the challenge was to make a "white out" card using only white and having just the image coloured. If you are making a card, don't forget to email it to Emily so that she can include you in tomorrow's post over at Bloggabella.  See you tomorrow, and I will be the one wearing all white ;)
